I am having a problem starting up my system. I am using MS Windows 98 First Edition, with the service pack installed. I always shut down my system correctly--I shut down all programs except those that normally run in the background, then I click on the Start Menu, Shut Down, then I click on OK when the confirmation box pops up. My system then begins to shut down, I see the Windows splash screen that says it is shutting down, then a message that says it is safe to turn off my comptuer. Then, my computer powers itself off.
However, when I power my system back up, as it is booting up, Scandisk comes on & says because my system wasn't shut down correctly last time, it will check my drives for errors. It never finds any.
I have run Scandisk, and Norton Disk Doctor, and have found no problems. There are no hardware conflicts listed in the Device Manager. I have no DirectX errors, and the System File Checker has not found any corrupted files.
What should I do to resolve this problem?
